Top 10 Things to do in Balaia

Balaia is the ideal destination for you to relax and enjoy a wonderful holiday in the Portuguese sun. Explore some of the region's finest golf courses, visit local market towns or spend your days relaxing and reenergising on a sun-soaked beach - the choice is yours. The beauty of Balaia is there's something for everybody. To help you decide what to do during your trip to Balaia, we've put together an introductory guide to the local area and what it has to offer.

Maria Luiza beach is definitely worth a visit, and there’s no end of sun loungers and water sports, while you can take advantage of the ideally situated beach bar if you need to quench your thirst. Balaia Golf Village is something of a hidden gem so you do get substantial seclusion, but the thriving town of Albufeira is only a short drive or bus journey away. Here you’ll be able to absorb the history and culture of this wonderful town, many of whose churches date back to the 1500s.

Here is our Balaia top 10:

  3. Try out some water sports. You will find a range of activities available, from windsurfing to rides in giant rubber rings.

  5. Visit the town of Albufeira. A short bus journey or drive will take you to this lovely historic town just a little further down the coast. See churches and landmarks dating back to the 1500s, then later, experience the vibrant nightlife on offer in the town's many bars and clubs.
